On a hot summer day, I love watching trail cam videos of beautiful bears bathing almost as much as they love taking their baths.
The most popular bathing hole for bears has two marking trees near it. The bears tend to dance at these trees either on their way to the water or as they leave. In this video, I included the footage of them at the trees as well as during their baths.
My favorite parts include them blowing bubbles when their noses are blow the water and how they "clean" their heads with their paws as they bathe.
Enjoy the video!
...sigh... so relaxing! YAM xx
You really have the best (and most fun) videos! I think they give us all an appreciation of nature and a glimpse into lives and nature that need to be preserved and protected.ReplyDelete
I love the sound of the water sloshing around too!ReplyDelete
I found it impossible to watch this without having a big smile on my face all the way through. I love it towards the end where she or he splashes around washes the face and then sits up and looks all around and then boogies off. They're such beautiful animals and I'm so glad they've got a water hole to play in the second bear dancing with the tree what's my favoriteReplyDelete
They look like that really enjoy their bath!ReplyDelete
It's so interesting to see them, just being bears and doing what they do. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
A tree massage AND a bath! Sounds like a bear's dream spa day.ReplyDelete
I am ready for a bubble bath! What fun watching the bathing bears! Thanks KB!!!!ReplyDelete
That is fun for them and us too!ReplyDelete
The last clip, did he hear something, sit up and listen, then run off? They must love that water, and warm days, 20C in our terms, what a delight to see them dancing, for large animals they are graceful as they hold onto the higher branches.ReplyDelete
What wonderful footge(as usual)! Love watching the bears relaxing!!ReplyDelete
We agree with you - that face washing is so cute. That second bear almost fell over when he/she first started to mark the tree:)ReplyDelete
We love watching your bathing bears. They sure do love to blow bubbles in the water. BOL!ReplyDelete
They are like big kidsReplyDelete
Bears are just so fun to watch. It's no wonder people love bears so much.ReplyDelete
